Index of Lesson Activities to go with 'Little House on the Prairie' Books




My family has had great success using the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder in our home lessons. It has proven to be one of our favorite literature unit studies.

In addition to the books themselves, I have used several other resources including:


Little House on the Prairie Literature Unit
Farmer Boy Literature Unit
Little House in the Big Woods Literature Unit
Laura Ingalls Wilder Across the Curriculum
The Prairie Primer by Margie Gray (at Christianbook.com)

Besides "The Prairie Primer", ChristianBook.com has many good resources for use with the Little House books:

My Little House Crafts Book
The Little House Cookbook
Laura Ingalls Wilder Country: The People and Places in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Life and Books
The Little House Guidebook
A Little House Reader
Laura's Album
The World of Little House
Westward Ho!: The Heart of the Old West by Diana Waring

Calvert School also has a curriculum based on the original Little House series, though I've never reviewed it.


The articles in the following index are all original, unless otherwise stated (with re-print or publication permission included as well as credit to the original author). I have used these activities to compliment the Little House on the Prairie books. They are in no way meant to plagiarize the books or any of the resources mentioned or detract from all the hard work of their authors. Rather, they are ideas that are original or that have been modified and re-worked for my own familyís personal needs. I am now sharing the activities with you in the hopes that you can find them fun and useful as well.

This index is organized by book, but each article can stand as an independent activity. You donít necessarily have to complete these activities in any particular order unless otherwise stated. There are some overlap between books as far as useful activities go, so you will see some of the activities listed under more than one book. Active articles will appear as underlined links. Additional activities will be added as they are published.
